The Cherwell Valley Dart Invitation Dart League consists of teams located in and around the Cherwell Valley area, invited annually by the league committee.
Message from the committee – Update 24th June
Following the announcement by the Government that pubs / clubs will be able to re-open on 4th July a meeting was held and the following decided by the committee. Continuing with the advice given by the Government regarding social distancing and with players’ health the priority of our decisions it has been decided not to rush back to soon. Therefore we hope to resume the Winter 2019/20 on Wednesday 9th September and look to complete the five remaining weeks fixtures (7-a-side KO/Plate semi finals and final, 4-a-side KO, Most Wins and Final Night) in 3 weeks with combined competition KO’s. Needless to say this date is only provisional and we will continue to monitor the Governments advice as well as respecting each individual pub / clubs policy regarding social distancing and the allowance of team games to begin. A further confirmation regarding the fixtures and dates will be posted nearer the time.
It is with regret that the league has been forced to cancel this years Summer League but winners of any trophies for the Summer 2019 season will be asked to return these shortly. Any teams who have submitted their entry forms and money for the Summer 2020 season can either have their money returned or held for their entry to the Winter League 20/21 season.
A provisional date has also been set for this years AGM of Wednesday 7th October. As decided during last years AGM all teams wishing to enter the Winter League 20/21 season must send at least representative to avoid starting the season with a 10 point penalty.
Summer League Entries
The last AGM took place at the Highfield Social Club on Sunday 29th September 2019 at 7pm and the following amendments made.
As from 2020 all teams must send at least 1 representative to the AGM. This doesn’t have to be the team captain. Any team failing to do so will start the Winter 1920/21 season with a 10 point penalty.
Starting from the Summer 2020 season team entry fees with rise from £25 + £2.50 per player to £30 + £2.50 per player. This is due to the following which also comes into immediate effect:
On finals night, trophies will be presented to the winners of all leagues and competitions. It is the responsibility of all winners to look after these trophies and return them when requested for presentation the following season. Any winners failing to return these trophies will incur an £80 fine to replace the missing trophy or will be banned from playing in the league.
The league is a non-profit organisation and cannot continue to buy trophies due to previous winners “not being able to find it, don’t know where it is, haven’t seen it” or any other excuse they may think is acceptable.
